Sustainability Sciences at Leuphana University of Lüneburg

A dis­tinc­tive fea­ture of the Sustaina­bi­li­ty Sci­en­ces pro­gram­me is its ba­lan­ce bet­ween sustainable na­tu­ral sci­en­ces and sustainable hu­ma­nities. Our goal is to look at so­ci­al-eco­lo­gi­cal sys­tems in an aca­de­mi­cal­ly groun­ded and in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry man­ner. We will ex­ami­ne the pro­ces­ses which form the ma­te­ri­al and en­er­ge­tic ba­sis for en­vi­ron­men­tal sustaina­bi­li­ty pro­blems as well as po­ten­ti­al prac­tical so­lu­ti­ons from the per­spec­tive of sustainable na­tu­ral sci­en­ces. In com­plex so­ci­al-eco­lo­gi­cal sys­tems the­se ma­te­ri­al pro­ces­ses are clo­se­ly in­ter­con­nec­ted with eco­no­mic, ju­ri­di­cal, po­li­ti­cal, and cul­tu­ral con­texts as well as with stra­te­gies and prac­tices of im­portant so­ci­al ac­tors. The­se im­ma­te­ri­al pre­re­qui­si­tes and con­di­ti­ons of en­vi­ron­men­tal sustaina­bi­li­ty pro­blems and the way the­se pro­blems are ad­dres­sed are the sub­ject of sustainable hu­ma­nities.

Sustainability Sciences at Leuphana University of Lüneburg: Course Content

The pro­gram­me be­gins with an in­tro­duc­tion which is the­med to the di­sci­pli­nes of en­vi­ron­men­tal and sustaina­bi­li­ty sci­en­ces. Com­mon foun­da­ti­ons of natural and human sciences are pro­vi­ded in the first se­mes­ter’s in­tro­duc­to­ry mo­du­les. In the fol­lo­wing se­mes­ters, stu­dents can select two mo­du­les to fur­ther spe­cia­li­ze in in­di­vi­du­al di­sci­pli­nes of en­vi­ron­men­tal and sustaina­bi­li­ty sci­en­ces.

 

In com­p­li­an­ce with the pro­fi­le of Leu­pha­na Uni­ver­si­ty of Lüne­burg and, in par­ti­cu­lar, of the Fa­cul­ty of Sustaina­bi­li­ty, the di­sci­pli­na­ry cour­se of­fe­rings of the pro­gram’s area of in­te­gra­ti­on are ex­ten­ded to in­clu­de a trans­di­sci­pli­na­ry and pro­blem-fo­cu­sed per­spec­tive: the two are­as of spe­cia­liza­t­i­on are com­bi­ned into in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry and trans­di­sci­pli­na­ry mo­du­les in the form of pro­ject stu­dies.

 

The cour­se of­fe­rings are com­ple­men­ted by a cross-di­sci­pli­na­ry Complementary Studies pro­gram, in which stu­dents learn about ge­ne­ral aca­de­mic foun­da­ti­ons re­flec­ting on sci­ence, as well as by the area of Masters Forum & Research Perspectives. Du­ring one mo­du­le per se­mes­ter, the Mas­ters Fo­rum & Re­se­arch Per­spec­tives area pre­pa­res stu­dents for their own in­de­pen­dent re­se­arch work and pro­vi­des them with fun­da­men­tal me­tho­do­lo­gi­cal know­ledge in sustaina­bi­li­ty sci­en­ces. Ba­sed on this in­ten­si­ve pre­pa­ra­ti­on pha­se, stu­dents com­ple­te their Mas­ters stu­dies in the fourth se­mes­ter by wri­ting their Masters dissertation.

Sustainability Sciences at Leuphana University of Lüneburg: Career

The Mas­ters pro­gram­me in Sustaina­bi­li­ty Sci­en­ces pro­vi­des an aca­de­mi­cal­ly groun­ded edu­ca­ti­on in en­vi­ron­men­tal and sustainable re­se­arch on the mas­ter le­vel. The goal is to pro­vi­de the theo­re­ti­cal, me­tho­do­lo­gi­cal, or­ga­niza­t­io­nal, and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ve skills that are ne­cessa­ry to de­ve­lop, rea­li­ze, and re­flect on one’s own di­sci­pli­na­ry and in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry re­se­arch work and pro­jects in the field of en­vi­ron­men­tal and sustaina­bi­li­ty sci­en­ces. In ad­di­ti­on, the de­gree pro­gram aims at en­ab­ling stu­dents to func­tion as chan­ge agents and in­itia­te, pro­mo­te, and ma­na­ge pro­ces­ses of tran­si­ti­on towards sustainable po­li­cies in eco­no­mic, sci­en­ti­fic, po­li­ti­cal, and ci­vil or­ga­niza­t­i­ons as well as to eva­lua­te the pro­ces­ses’ re­sults and im­pacts.

 

De­pen­ding on their in­di­vi­du­al aca­de­mic pro­fi­le, gra­dua­tes will have a wide ran­ge of ca­re­er op­ti­ons in sustaina­bi­li­ty-fo­cu­sed re­se­arch (par­ti­cu­lar­ly in in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry and trans­di­sci­pli­na­ry re­se­arch con­texts). They will also have ac­cess to lea­ding po­si­ti­ons in busi­ness and con­sul­ting, pu­blic ad­mi­nis­tra­ti­on, na­tio­nal and in­ter­na­tio­nal third sec­tor or­ga­niza­t­i­ons as well as po­li­ti­cal ad­vi­sing.

 

Upon com­ple­ti­on of the stu­dy pro­gram­me, stu­dents are awar­ded the Mas­ter of Sci­en­ces (M.Sc.) de­gree.

Sustainability Sciences at Leuphana University of Lüneburg: Admission

The Mas­ters pro­gram­me is tar­ge­ted at gra­dua­tes with a ba­che­lors or equi­va­lent de­gree, who wish to ex­pand their aca­de­mic know­ledge of en­vi­ron­men­tal and sustaina­bi­li­ty sci­en­ces. It is not re­qui­red that your pre­vious de­gree was com­ple­ted in en­vi­ron­men­tal or sustaina­bi­li­ty sci­en­ces, ne­ver­the­l­ess ba­sic know­ledge in at least one of the fiel­ds of sustaina­bi­li­ty sci­en­ces is ne­cessa­ry. The ba­sic mo­du­les of­fe­red in the first se­mes­ter have a con­ver­gence func­tion and, the­re­fo­re, stu­dents must be wil­ling to col­la­bo­ra­te at in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry le­vel. Ad­mis­si­on re­qui­re­ments in­clu­de, among other as­pects, ade­qua­te know­ledge of the Eng­lish lan­gua­ge.
